Yi Indicator and other Health Tools and Screens
Yi ™ — Our Proprietary Algorithm Accurately Predicts Weight Loss
Our proprietary formula utilizes data from more than 500 body composition scans analyzed and correlated with an exhaustive outcome study of 200 patients enrolled in our Beyond Care® six-month Weight Balance program. Using this extraordinary data, we have created an algorithm – the Yavari Indicator (called Yi) that enables us to screen and categorize every patient into one of several distinct types of obesity or weight gain and predict weight loss accurately.
How Does It Work?
Other parameters that also influence your metabolism are age, gender and activity level. Beyond Care patients follow our customized meal plans, while also exercising and learning to reduce stress and relax, but our data has revealed that body composition is an even better weight loss predictor. Our scientific formula predicts how many pounds individuals with a given body composition will lose in a six-month period. We use this information to guide our patients to success.
The body composition scan analyzed by our method tells you:
- How much weight to lose to achieve a healthy body composition and how long it will take to get there. Yi pinpoints the average weight loss per month that is ideal for your particular body composition.
- Whether your “metabolic burn rate” is appropriate and healthy for you — or are there other factors, such as hormonal disorders or medications, slowing your weight loss?
- Where your fat is located. Whether fat is subcutaneous (outside) or visceral (around organs) is relevant — the latter causes metabolic syndrome.
- What kind of exercise you should engage in to achieve maximum results – for instance, those with a muscular body composition should follow a different exercise plan than those with less muscle.
At Beyond Care we use specialized assessment tools to evaluate your current health and develop the appropriate diet and exercise plan for you.
For everyone there is an optimally healthy weight that takes into consideration variables including height, age, metabolism and more. Not only can we pinpoint this figure, but we can also predict with great accuracy what is needed to achieve it and how long it will take to get (and stay) there. Our proprietary formula utilizes extraordinary data from more than 500 body composition scans analyzed and correlated with an exhaustive outcome study of 200 patients. We have created an algorithm – the Yavari Indicator (called Yi) — that enables us to screen and categorize every patient into one of 18 types of obesity or weight gain and predict weight loss accurately.
Metabolic Syndrome & Diabetes
Our proprietary, non-invasive test can determine risk for both with great efficacy the risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome. The tool uses a simple algorithm calculated from body measurements such as weight, waistline and hip diameter – those at high risk can then test their blood sugar for diagnosis of diabetes. This revolutionary test can help diagnose millions of people at early stages of diabetes and thus reduce the likelihood of complications from this so-called “silent killer.” Meanwhile, those with pre-diabetes can use our guidelines for healthy lifestyle change to prevent diabetes altogether.
